Shannonia expands: Middleton
Where builders of other microscale cities pray towards five times daily... if they know what's good for them.
About this creation
Squeezed in between the North Heights, Old Downtown, and the Central, Dome Hill, North Beach, and Riverside districts, you have the area known as Middleton.



Beer lovers beware -- Drunktoberfest stocks over three thousand different brews from all over the world. Make it the last stop on your visit to Shannonia, otherwise you might not see anything else.






The Bluestone apartments were bravely rebuilt immediately after the Great Monkey Riots, but the rest of the neighborhood never recovered its former glory. Now the New Blue, as it's called, stands in quiet shabby dignity, a monument to days gone by.






Like the unfortunate middle child, Middleton often finds itself ignored. Even the mailman is under the impression that every building there actually belongs in another district.






Stickytooth candy shop. Shangri-la for those ten and under. Even after you get older and your life ceases to completely revolve around processed sugar, it's still pretty cool.







Shannonia Free Clinic. For the crybabies who absolutely must go see a doctor every time they get the sniffles, a headache, or mauled by a tiger.







Zan's H2Ouse. An ice-skating rink for half the year, a huge indoor pool for the other half.








Got vertigo?









This depressing, impassive, windowless structure is Shannonia High School. Nothing conveys the joys of learning to impressionable young minds like a dreary, prisonlike, institutional atmosphere. They eliminated the student's smoking area after the Mayor's sophomore year, and opened the daycare for student mothers before the Mayor's senior year. Progress.




Mr. Kelso's Flying Funtacular Goatee Ride Carnival. No one under the physical age of 18 or over the emotional age of 15 allowed inside. And don't even ask about the infamous "baton trick." It's... just too awful. (Why they built the school right next door, the PTA has never been able to figure out.)





Magic Mountain arcade and pinball. All the old school classics you remember -- Galaga, Pacman, Donkey Kong Jr, Pole Position! And everything still plays for a quarter. A couple of deaf, dumb, and blind kids like to hang out near the pinball tables. One of them really sucks, the other one will hustle you. But I can't tell you which is which.





The view of Middleton from the top of the falls. Of course if you found yourself at the top of the falls, you would then very quickly find yourself at the bottom, in which case the view would not have lasted this long.






Foothills Park has always been famous for the large number of UFO sightings and angel visitations reported by visitors. It is also famous for the extremely high concentration of hallucinogenic mushrooms that grow there.






Dr. Donothing's Pets and Aquarium. The hardest part may be actually getting out of the store with your intended purchase -- the Doctor tends to become a little bit too attached to the animals.






Skunk Terrace Suites. All the bigshots maintain residences here -- The Mayor of Shannonia, The Skunk Works CEO, the High Bishop of Coleoidea, the President of the Alex Eylar Fan Club, the God of MOCtag...









Looking down on Middleton from the North Heights -- which, coincidentally enough, is where we're going next. Back to nature! Enough of this city crap!

This is incredible, really. I love the tinyness of the city and the perspective you used in the original photo. If you didn't know how big the pieces are, you'd imagine the thing to be much bigger. I'd love to do something like this, now that I've seen it done so well.

I think what Shannonia needs now is a suburban area. You know, rows of houses with small gardens...

Hey! You made me an ice rink! I'm so flattered. And is it just coincidence that Mr. Kelso's Flying Funtacular Goatee Ride Carnival and the free clinic are in the same district? I think not... ~ Chris.

Quoting Lord Lego 436 That was very arrogant.
*sigh* Why you people continue to insist on taking me seriously I will never figure out.

AH, so I was wrong...sorry. You said you were the "god of Moctag" BUT, WE all know, even though you created MOCtag, it is all the people whom have added to it, that make it what it is. Which only makes you the "PAPA" of Moctag, not "god".

Quoting Caleb Cutlass-Crocodile Blanchet "God of Mocpages" my foot!
Insult me all you want, but don't misquote me. Please reread the caption carefully. It's bad enough I have kids unable to understand the humor in my AWARD WINNING tirade in the "Central District" installment, I don't need you stirring up trouble. Although "God of MOCpages" does have a nice ring to it...

Yes, it needs lava!
  February 9, 2009
I could use some dense forests, rapid rivers, and perhaps a volcano or two, after seeing the "lovely" highlights of the city. Well, I'm never going to a carnival again, that's for sure.

Fantastically incredible. Where's the trophy?

JD brings up a good point. You should add volcanos and a lot of lava. I've seen your ninja posting that had this (which I'm really jealous of)

Cheese wedges are a lazy man's micro piece. =) Well done Shannon, now lets see something akin to Mt. Rainier! Yeah, we Washingtonians can be quite snobby about our great landscape, eh? I can point to two volcanoes any day of the year; even with heavy cloud cover, which is 320 of those days.
